are you sure about the copy back to ram? Icould see where once in a

Not really, no.

I designed and implemented a system that stores configuration data in a
EEPROM.  The EEPROM is read once at reset into a RAM buffer.  All of the
system's read and write accesses are from and to the RAM buffer.  A three
second timer is started any time that the RAM buffer is written and, when
that timer expires, the EEPROM is updated.  This supports a compromise
between wearing out the EEPROM with excessive writes and the desire to
keep the EEPROM up to date.
